Objectives:

  1. to assess how participants are currently activating learners
  2. to role play an interaction with a learner, using the 8-step preceptor model
  3. to dissect how blended learning can activate learners
  4. Advance your working knowledge of CBME
  5. Understand the context for the development of specialty-specific milestones
  6. Compare the current state of assessment to the milestones
  7. Experience team-based learning

Why you should attend:  

In this workshop we will use a team-based learning format to engage participants actively in exploring the tenets of competency-based medical education.  We will discuss the challenges of workplace-based assessment of competence, and the promise of the milestones in helping us advance towards our goal of meaningful assessment of learners. Participants will be able to apply the content immediately through an exercise comparing traditional assessment methods to assessment using the milestones.
